Patrick Serenades David at the Rose Apothecary Open-Mic Night

Patrick and Stevie Rehearse "Money"
As the leads in the town's theater production of Cabaret, Patrick and Stevie find themselves in over their heads with the choreography for "Money," especially with Moira as the overzealous director. Though they try to keep their dance lessons a secret from Moira in an attempt to spare her pride, Moira ends up catching them in the act anyway. This musical number is not only the first time we see Stevie sing on the show but also an exciting tease of the fan-favorite season five finale.
Moira's Auditions For The Jazzagals
As soon as Moira finds out that Schitt's Creek has its very own a cappella group, The Jazzagals, Moira becomes obsessed with taking it by storm. A self-proclaimed professional vocalist, Moira wastes no time hyping herself up to Jocelyn and the rest of the Jazzagals. Although she believes she is more than qualified to be part of the group, her hilarious audition says otherwise.
Alexis Sings the Theme Song of Her Reality Show
Before her family moved to Schitt's Creek, Alexis was the star of a reality show called A Little Bit Alexis.

David and Moira Perform a Duet For Asbestos Fest
As the headline act of Asbestos Fest: An Evening With Television's Moira Rose, Moira has no room for failure.

While Moira claims she can't possibly make the graduation in time due to a conflicting Jazzagals event, she and the rest of the Jazzagals not only show up but also close the graduation ceremony with a surprise performance of "Baby I'm Yours" dedicated to Alexis.
The Schitt's Creek Townies Carol at the Rosebud Motel Christmas Party

Stevie Receives a Standing Ovation For Her Cabaret Solo
Anyone who's watched Schitt's Creek from the beginning knows this season five scene is the pinnacle of Stevie's character development.

This profoundly empowering performance of "Maybe This Time" proves Stevie is capable of more than she gives herself credit for.
David Lip-Syncs and Dances For Patrick
After Patrick's ex unexpectedly shows up in Schitt's Creek, an overwhelmed David decides to put a pause on his and Patrick's relationship.
